Wild West End by Dire Straits

Album: Dire StraitsReleased: 1978
  • The title refers to an area of London. Lead guitarist Mark Knopfler moved to the capital after completing an English degree at Leeds University. Like most tourists - foreign and domestic - he enjoyed walking around the West End, always with an eye on the ladies. He spots one particularly attractive young woman in Shaftesbury Avenue; another song on this album, "In The Gallery," had its genesis in a different sort of encounter in that same street. "Wild West End" runs to 4 minutes 42 seconds. >>
